this story with the world. you wouldn't know it to look over here, but public education is our most pressing political, social and moral problem. everybody knows it, and positions are entrenched, and there's a lot of hot rhetoric on all sides. somehow we've gotten to a point where frustration has built to such a fever pitch, that we've turned on teachers as the villains and started shutting down schools all over the country. as a writer after a good story to tell, i went looking in the pressure cooker of a public high school working against the clock to raise test scores. i wanted to take a look at what we're throwing away in this big national purge. instead, i found a dynamic principle leading a -- principal, leading a group of passionate, dedicated teachers at a school with a proud tradition to rally the community around. i found a scramble to help a surprisingly savvy group of kids who have been largely abandoned by the system. um, as most of you probably know, the book traces the pivotal 2009-2010 school year at reagan high, and we've been -- weaved in a lot of its history. not all, but

question. the simplest answer has to do with education. if you adjusted those rates for the various education levels within each of those groups, they'd be a lot closer. for example, if you look at the unemployment rate for high school graduates, it's probably around 8% or 9%. college graduates, around 4%. one explanation. and, look, there's still discrimination in our job market against minorities, that's another explanation. >> okay. look, it's not just jack welch, whom we heard from, perpetuating this conspiracy theory. look at these interviews. congressman alan west, senator john mccain both on cnbc. here we go. >> i know. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data. correct? >> well, absolutely. >> frankly, i am not enough of an economist to question exactly what those numbers are. our discussion about the warren act that just took place where there are blatant violations of the law, i wouldn't put anything past this administration. >> you know, these are sit

- college educated white women as a group that has moved some in the last couple of weeks. non-college educated white men are a no-fly zone for the president. but the women were up for grabs. have you noticed anything like that? is that a metric you are looking at? >> it is. everybody talks about the women's vote. there are a number of factors. people do not realize this -- john mccain won white women by seven points. that is not enough to win overall. obviously, he lost by seven points. when you look at white women voters, there are groups that are more likely to vote republican. those include white women without college degrees, white women who are married, and women with children. when you look at the differences between white women who are married and white women who are single, whether it be they are not married, they are widowed, or they are divorced, those groups vote overwhelmingly for obama. if ron is right and the president is making gains with non-college educated white women, that is problematic for our side. i have not seen as much as -- as much of a shift as he ha
on government regulation, education and health care. >> how would repeal it? >> it's a lengthy discussion, but number one, preexisting conditions are covered under my plan. >> that assurance is misleading, and later on an adviser had to clarify what mr. romney actually meant. under mr. romney's plan, he said, preexisting conditions would only be covered for people who already have insurance to begin with, but are changing jobs and, therefore, health insurance plans. that's not what most people think of when it comes to preexisting conditions. ironically, the health care law that mitt romney signed in massachusetts and remains in place, it does allow for preexisting conditions whether they have health cainsurance or not. we will be watching big bird and his good friend oscar the grouch. it certainly got my attention. but first we have political analyst roland martin. do you think mitt romney is taking more centrist positions? >> the 47% comment really breaks down into two. the pejorative way he talked about the 47%, you didn't show my clip. when you asked me about that the day afterwards,
to be the pensions, i told you sucking up 71-cents out of every education dollar in illinois. political theater indulged here did not address of unfunded teacher pensions. that is what i'm talking about that is me talking about the chicago teacher union settlement with rahm emanuel, and all of the political theater that and all of the political heater that attended, and as a to you at that time, it is all about, all about the pensions and the pensions pay for them. and the governor is now quoting the idea of a federal bailout of illinois mentioned that. can you believe this stuff? and mean, a little -- just all little decency here, folks. announcing the state's fiscal 2012 budget last year governor quinn said he would seek a federal guarantee of its unfunded liabilities. sounds harmless enough, but ask about it back then. the governor claimed to bailout language was a precaution. now he calls it a drafting error. others try to call it a trial balloon. how big is the illinois problem? it has $8 billion in current outstanding debt. 8 billion. you say, okay. 8 billion. we live in a land of $16 tri
pillars. one was educate our people love to and beyond what the technology was so we could get the most out of it. so it was universal primary education, the factory of the universal secondary education and it was universal post secondary education to the extent that we could do that. we have the world's best infrastructure, bandwidth etc. then we had the world's most open and the sentry half century to increase the most energetic and talented around the world to start 40% of the new countries in silicon valley and the best rules for the capitol formation to prevent the recklessness and incentivize risk-taking. and last we had the most government funded research to push the boundaries of science and technology so our best innovators and the entrepreneurs could pluck them and start these companies. if you think about that is a formula for success, and education we now -- well, roughly 30% of high school students drop out of high school. we used to lead the world in college graduates coming out of high school. we no longer do that. on infrastructure, according to the american society of c
